Laurie's friend Cheryl and her daughter Kaeli are moving up to Tacoma from Portland! Cheryl just accepted a job as a small public library director in North Tacoma, so they will be moving up here by the end of August.
Two years ago at Christmas, Cheryl adopted Kaeli in China and Laurie went along as Cheryl's support person. We've gone down there as often as we could, but we still feel like we are missing too much of her growing up.
Kaeli just turned three in early July when we got her a sleeping bag and a pillow for camping. We were going to try and arrange a camping trip with them sometime this summer or fall, and now it looks like we will have a lot more opportunities to test out that sleeping bag. There is no doubt in my mind that she is going to love camping out, and later on become quite a little backpacker. Before her second birthday she was laready going for walks in parks of over a mile.
